St. Edmunds Property Owners, Inc.


MEMO #4-2024

  • To lead collective action in support of the long term affordable enjoyment of our properties in an unspoiled natural environment.
  • To encourage responsible attitudes for sustaining the high quality of life on our St. Edmunds properties.
Hello subscriber,


At a time of unprecedented demand for affordable housing and universally escalating costs, should The Municipality of Northern Bruce Peninsula, for the next thirty years, be committing millions of dollars towards this project?

St. Edmunds Property Owners, Inc. position is that "SEPO" supports access to community infrastructure that benefits all property owners, whether seasonal or year round. We question the wisdom of this large expenditure and in particular burdening present and future generations with thirty years of payments in addition to ongoing maintenance, operation and staffing expenses.
The following four items are from MNBP Council agendas.
The initial report by the CAO is 2022 CAO Report 22-11
The ESTIMATED building cost Community Centre Cost Summary
Additional costs over and above the building costs Order of Magnitude Budget
